On September 4th and 11th our board of education met with the administrators and directors in the district for “board retreat meeting” evenings to discuss future plans and the direction of the school district. We talked about what we want to see from our graduates after their years of public education in Burlington, positives and challenges in the district, and professional development for our staff. Our building facilities were also a focal point of our meetings. We went through all of the buildings to see the improvements that have occurred this past school year and over the summer. A big part of our discussions focus on making sure we are taking care of our facilities so we utilize tax payer money wisely. I want to share with you some upcoming projects we are looking at in the district and the reasons we are looking to do these projects.
The board of education and I have received so many positive complements from the public on our improved facilities in the district, especially the new science rooms at BHS and BMS as well as the BHS gym renovation. Our people have pride in everything associated with Burlington. Having excellent facilities helps bring families to our community and school system. We can attract good teachers that contribute positively to our students and staff.
